Destination: Negril, Jamaica
Best deal found: We stayed at a Sandals all-inclusive resort for our honeymoon in May. Not a great deal there, but worth every penny to be waited on hand and foot for a whole week. Amazingly beautiful beaches and sunsets. This was just one of the awesome sunsets, taken from our balcony. Lorie M.

Best deal found: Hands down, Edventure Tours (not misspelled, the owner is Ed) is the best deal you can find for a day in Mexico. We snorkeled in caves, and in a tropical lagoon, explored ruins, met a jungle monkey, and ended our day at a FANTASTIC restaurant directly on the beach (sand under our feet!) called La Buena Vida. We were a family of 5, and it all cost under $400, plus the restaurant meal and tip for our driver. Money well spent, and the best bang for the buck.

Best deal found: The Italian Riviera was the most beautiful location I visited on my Western Mediterranean cruise. Cinque Terre–Five Villages–in the area of LaSpezia, Italy, offered so many breathtaking views. The best deal was using the cruise lines’ credit card points, which deducted $1,000 of the cost of the cruise.
